Nonacho bedrock mapping project
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: This project will examine sedimentary and volcanic rocks that were deposited on an old craton, in a basin that formed during the collision of two cratons. The research team aim to document which cratons were responsible for the basin’s formation and at what time they collided. The research team will spend 20 days in the field using mainly a boat and a helicopter to access areas of interest. The...

Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of bedrock geology of two regions of the Mackenzie Mountains, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and economic mineralogy. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production and publication of bedrock geology maps and reports on the...

South Rae Project
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012
Summary: This work is part of NRCan’s Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program, designed to upgrade the geoscience knowledge base in Canada’s North to modern standards. A team of 10-15 scientists set up a temporary camp in the area of interest. Float planes, helicopter and boats are used to access remote areas. The scientists walk on the land and make observations, take notes and draw sketches. Small...

Geochemical comparison from three Archean greenstone belts across the Slave craton.
Principal Investigator: Williams, Benjamin P
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: Through detailed mapping, select transects, and comprehensive sampling, a geochemical comparison of three Archean volcanic belts in the Slave craton (Northwest Territories) will help advance the knowledge of stratigraphy, and magmatic evolution within each belt. Detailed Mapping: traversing (walking) over bedrock outcrops, examining lithology’s, notes and picture taking, and sample collecting....

Geochemistry of Paleoproterozoic Granular Iron Formations (East Arm of Great Slave Lake)
Principal Investigator: Pecoits, Ernesto
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: By means of geochemical data on banded iron formation (BIF), and associated volcanic and sedimentary rocks the main objectives of this study are: (1) to delineate the source (continental, hydrothermal) of silica and iron in BIF, (2) to make inferences about the seawater from which these rocks are deposited in, and (3) to evaluate the implications for early life on Earth. This study wil...

South Rae, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The bedrock may contain mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, lead, zinc, and diamonds. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist mineral exploration activities , and provi...

Blatchford Lake, NT Airborne Gravity Gradiometry Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of the airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution airborne gravity gradient and magnetic data. Airborne gravity gradiometry surveys measure small variations in the rate of change of the gravity field due to lateral variations in the mass and density of underlying bedrock. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapp...

Southern Bear Province Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The project is aimed at obtaining a better understanding of the bedrock geology and mineral potential of the South Bear area. Southern Bear project area is in the Bear Structural Province of the Northwest Territories centred approximately 240 km north-northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse and limited to 1:250 000 regional mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC...

2006 Great Bear River Seismic Test Program in the Sahtu Settlement Area - Tulita District
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective of the program is to collect information regarding the surficial geology of the Great Bear River at the location of the proposed pipeline watercourse crossing. This information will be used to determine the depth to bedrock as part of the information for a river crossing design, and for use in the design of a proposed horizontal directional drill (HDD) crossing at this location. S...

Surficial Materials Investigations, South Nahanni Area
Principal Investigator: Menounos, Brian p
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The various objectives of the study are: to refine the previously compiled landslide inventory map with field checking, to identify causal mechanisms to slope instability (such as bedrock or surficial material type, aspect, elevation, glacial history, and permafrost distribution), to identify frequency of landslide types, to examine landscape patterns in the Nahanni karst area to establish relatio...
